In the early 1980s, the history of magic was changed for ever as Dai Vernon sat down in a Canadian film studio to permanently record his life and magic for future generations. Now available in a digital download format, it's easier than ever for magicians to learn from The Professor of modern magic.


Co-hosted by Michael Ammar, Gary Ouellet and Steve Freeman, these tapes were known as the "Vernon Revelations" and feature some of the most influential magic ever documented. It was a rare opportunity to see Dai Vernon work. The chance for every magician now and in the future to learn magic from the master himself.

Many years later, L&L Publishing digitally re-mastered the footage to be released as a massive 8-part DVD. One of the most popular sets ever produced, these videos have now been converted into a digital download format. These magic downloads allow you to instantly start learning from The Professor from anywhere in the world.

Any serious magician can benefit from watching these "Vernon Revelations" downloads.

Other important details:

  • This is Vernon at his best, holding court in a jam session style format where he discusses tricks, moves and routines
  • All the moves, techniques, routines, tips and handlings discussed are actually performed by Vernon or one of the co-hosts, along with a complete explanation.
  • Roughly half of the subjects covered relate to the published record; half the material was new and disclosed for the first time (at the time of the video shoot)
  • Many times, Vernon teaches important new techniques on the Vernon classics, including improvements, or previously undisclosed handlings, even as regards the famous Stars of Magic effects.
  • Some world famous routines, such as the Coins in Champagne Glass or the Fred Kaps Coins and Silk (invented by Vernon and taught to Kaps) are publicly revealed.
  • Important revelations about the Erdnase techniques, which Vernon has spent a lifetime studying, form a major part of the material.
